On the Waterfront - Key West

If you are looking for a Key West getaway with waterfront views, private dock, newer construction, and located near Old Town, you might want to look at 11 McCoy Circle in the Flagler's Landing Condominiums. There are just 13 units at Flagler's Landing which were constructed in 2001. Only a few have changed ownership since the development was built, so you may not have heard of or even know of its existence. The aerial photo above shows the location just off North Roosevelt Boulevard in the Hilton Haven addition to Key West.

Unit 11 noted with the X

Private outdoor patio with covered parking behind

Unit 11 has a private boat slip

The listing agent describes 11 McCoy Circle this way:
"Breathe taking sunsets--- Experience true Key West living with this home's colorful Caribbean decor. The first floor boasts a wall-to-wall window and sliding glass doors on it's west side that allows you to bring the outdoors in. If the beautiful Gulf view isn't enough, get even closer to the water by using it's exclusive boat slip. Built to last forever, and then some..."
The two story unit sits to the west of the development which arcs from northeast to southwest. The main living level is located above covered parking and a large outdoor semi-covered patio that looks toward the water.
The kitchen, living room and half-bath are on the main level. The west wall is a bank of sliders that open onto a deck that overlooks the water. A separate deck on the backside looks toward the community pool. An intricate custom built wooden spiral staircase winds from the living level to the top floor bedroom level. Each of the two bedrooms has a separate bath. Unit #11 has 1103 sq ft of living space plus the second level deck off the living room and generous ground floor patio.

The monthly condo fee here is $434 which includes Exterminating, Building Exterior Maintenance, Building Insurance, Common Area Maintenance, and Pool Service. The fact there have been only a few condo resales in the ten years life of this property should mean financial stability for the association.

Unit #11 is offered at $515,000 or $432 per sq ft. CLICK HERE to search the Key West mls to compare this unit that is located directly on the water's edge and that has its own boatslip with other condominium developments in Key West. You will find lower priced properties, for sure, but not with direct water view or boat slip or both with the exception of a couple of units on Eisenhower Drive which are priced higher both in asking price and on a price per sq ft basis.

Looks like a nice place. Amazing old photo of Key West! It's so wild to see what it looked like before "New Town" was created.

I'm glad you noticed. It's stuff like this that let's us appreciate what was here before.

Now, if we could undo some of the crap on Duval!

Good luck with the idea of trying to undo the crap on Duval Street.

In the 25+ years I have been here, it hasn't happened yet.

And I don't see anything happening in the near future.

As long as t-shirt shops and bars make money, Duval Street will not change.

Not in my lifetime I don't believe.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
